Gone by Michael Grant

Rating 5

Reviewed by Ally, grade 8

Sam Temple was lost in a daydream when the teacher disappeared. As people came to find out everybody over the age of fifteen had "poofed." It was rather fun at the beginning, but as it wore on, for most kids it was a nightmare. Everything started mutating, rivalries arose, and kids started to realize that they needed someone to be in charge. In a world with no rules anything can happen, and it doesn't always happen for the best. I recommend Gone to anyone who love adventure, romance, and horror.
